About Darksiders 2

Awakened by the End of Days, Death, the most feared of the legendary Four Horsemen, embarks on a quest to redeem his brother’s name. Become the terrifying force which everything fears but nothing can escape.

The original  Darksiders®, released in January 2010, received critical acclaim including the Best Fantasy Game 2010 award from IGN.  Darksiders followed the story of WAR, wrongly accused of starting the apocalypse, on a quest to reclaim lost honor and take revenge on those who wronged him.
